New essay: Seven theses on the Fediverse and the becoming of FLOSS

Recently, @rra and I have been working on an essay highlighting questions about the and how these are getting entangled with practices. From software production to structure and governance within alternative social media, online communities and politics.

The text follows a multi theses model, to map the different things we've been looking at and publish the current state of our research.

It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (

Feedback welcome. We're planning to publish an online version with more references!

I’m happy to announce the Drowning in Γ†ther - Signal hunting bike rides.
The during the month of December I invite you to join me on a trip through the radio spectrum. We are going to hunt for as well as make audible signals of ghost satellites and satellite radio pirates hijacking abandoned military satellites. For the last couple of weeks, I have been assembling a mobile listening station, a cargo bike with a sound system, my antennas, and all the necessary equipment to hunt for satellite signals. During these collaborative bike rides, we try to sync up with the circadian rhythms of the satellites and explore the urban environment of Rotterdam to find the perfect spot to capture their radio signals.
Due to the current Covid situation, I’m planning multiple rides with small groups. The bikes will not only bring us to our listening spots but also help us to keep a healthy distance. So far, I scheduled the 4. & 5. of December as well as the 11. & 12. of December, but other spontaneous group rides during the month could be planned by contacting me.
If you are interested and want to receive updates, please sign up to the Drowning in Γ†ther mailing list via this link:

I'm wondering if the GPU shortage is going to create an incentive to rethink graphics hardware and software (and... glob forbid.. optimize things). For instance it feels like projects like AMD FSR or to some extent Nvidia DLSS, are pointing towards new directions that deviate from the usual moar-core-is-moar-is-good approach that's been dominating until now.

Thoughts or insights?

Tomorrow and Wednesday (remote via a Telegram channel and irl) at Lucerne University School of Art and Design:

"Cables, waves, hard drives and tattoos or how to trace the post-photographic image across networks"

In this two days workshop, we propose a transdisciplinary dialogue between ethnography, computer science, network activism, media and cultural studies in order to explore different methodologies of tracing/tracking images, patterns of circulation and various forms of 'invisibility'.

For more information:

"Conversations with Computers" continues today with a focus on #esolangs. From 6pm CET presentations of #MarianaMarangoni, #DanielTemkin #SarahGroffHenning_Palermo #MaksValencic & #ekheo.

NEW DESIGN CONGRESS x @entreprecariat



new short essay on design synthesis 

The short essay I wrote for Designers Write is finally out! Here, I ask: is design actually capable of synthesis? Can design truly "sum up" problems?*

I also had the chance to discuss the text with Joeri Pruys, who read an excerpt of his father's book Dingen Vormen Mensen from 1972, Klara Debeljak, author of the Theory of the Chrono-ghettos, and Aynouk Tan, who moderated the conversation. You find the podcast on the website.


There are two implementations I would like for my :

- classic (e.g. Kickstart 1.3 OCS A500 with 512kB RAM) booting from double-density (880kB) interoperable with the OS (no custom disk format), with mouse, keyboard and joystick support (2 mice could be fun, or 2 sticks, depending on the rom). Bonus points if it's portable enough to work on with a simple recompile (i.e, uses OS calls instead of custom chip pokes)

- bare metal (no FPU, 4MB RAM) bootable from double-density floppy (720kB) but maybe also supporting high density (1.44MB), with mouse + keyboard support - probably sensible to start with a DOS version first?

ideally they would persist data back to the boot disk if desired, and/or use a ram disk

is anyone working on these yet? otherwise I may have enough time next summer...

Starting today and throughout this week the PIXELvienna 14 conference for computer graphics and animation is happening again (free and mostly online). We've got a fine selection of artist talks with Q&A, and I'm especially happy that more than half of our speakers this year are queer or female, something we failed to achieve last year.

Featured artwork in this post is from Nidia Dias, [M]Dudeck & Jan Urschel.
